Alright. So I finally got enough for the differential and instal, the only issue is finding a fair price for the labor. All the shops around me want at least $650 (one shop quoted me $900...). This seems outrageous to me since some people do this at home themselves with what appears to be minimal experience. From what I've seen on other forums, I was expecting a $300 labor cost, $400 max.
I've never dug into one of these before(aside from changing diff fluid) and also don't have any of the super specialized differential tools. I have a complete wrench, ratchet, and socket set though. Would it be worth my while to buy the tools, seals, bearings, diff fluid, and anything else i'll need to do it myself or keep on searching for a cheaper quote, possibly traveling a ways to get it done?
Also, I'd be willing to keep the stock 3.55 gearing to make installing it myself easier.
